Workplace Tobacco Cessation Programs

The CDC estimates that 48.6% of adult every day smokers in Rhode Island tried to quit smoking for one or more days in 2015.

Our Workplace Tobacco Cessation Program is convenient because we come to you.

Helping your employees quit is a win-win. Tobacco use costs you in absenteeism due to health issues, presenteeism due to withdrawal symptoms and money due to higher healthcare costs. Research estimates this annual cost to be $5800 per employee. When your employee quits you win, too.

 

There are a lot of digital options out there for health coaching and tobacco cessation. They are great, but, if your employees are not particularly tech-savvy or they simply prefer working with an actual human being who gets what they are going through, you are in the right place.

 

Our program is effective because it is built on the collaborative, goal-oriented relationship our facilitators create with your employee.

 

We specialize in personalized, on-site treatment for tobacco use with an emphasis on relapse prevention. We want your people to quit and stay quit. You can help them do that.
